San Marco church Milan Reviews
An art treasury Nov 05, 2011
The church of San Marco is located in the Brera district, and as the mother house of the order of St Augustine it contains artworks related to Augustinian subjects:
a fresco by the Fiammenghinis: Alexander IV Instituting the Order of the Augustinians
16th-century frescoes by Lomazzo that narrate the stories of Saint Peter and Saint Paul,
the peculiar nativity scene made of paper
the sarcophagus of the blessed Lanfranco Settala, including the statue of the deceased surrounded by angels and saints
underneath the Settala tomb precious frescoes were found among which a crucifixion attributed to a 14th-century Lombard master
the Martino Aliprandi sarcophagus with its dual representation of God’s sacred divinity in the Heavens and incarnation on Earth
a monochrome Madonna of the Leonardo school,
an Antegnati organ dating back to the 16th century is particularly noteworthy.
Definitely worth the detour!
Completely accessible to the disabled, but ask for permission to park at the adjacent square.
